Most students already attend a weekly art class in school. Why should elementary, middle school, and even high school students take art classes OUTSIDE of school? Isn't it the same thing?
There are many ways that our big kids benefit from regular weekly art classes OUTSIDE of school. Here are just a handful:
We've had out 3Doodlers for a month now and I finally feel comfortable writing a short review of the product. If you're not familiar with the 3Doodler, check out the video link below for the newer 2.0 models:
Our studio invested in a few of the 2.0 because they were quieter and lighter and not too much more expensive than the older model. We currently have three of the 3D printing pens. We've used them for two classes and the our instructors have had a chance to play with them.
Here's what we've learned:

Beginning September 3rd, Orange Easel is offering semi-private and small group art classes for Middle School and High School students. Orange Easel Instructors support the artists in project conception, composition, and execution.
Our goal is nurture the young artists in both the CREATIVE CONFIDENCE to conceptualize art and the TECHNICAL SKILLS to create it.
What do these classes "look like"?
Imagine a full hour every week where you can exercise creative muscles. In these classes, we brainstorm in our art journals, search our inspiration online and it books, gather our materials, and work hard to make our individual visions come to life.
Inspired to work with paints and canvases? Or complete a large-scale charcoal drawing? We can do that. Want to play with metals and jewelry? We can do that too. How about a mixed media work? We can support you though the multiple layers of that project--teaching you techniques along the way. Not sure what to do? Don't worry. Our instructors have plenty of project ideas up their sleeves! You can pick one.
Students may work for a considerable length of time on the one project or they may finish their work in one or two classes; they may have multiple projects going at once. Creativity demands flexibility.
Lockers are available for these students to store their work safely.
An hour isn't very long. What if I need more time?
Need more time to work? Our studio is open on Saturday mornings for drop-in Open Art; during this time, middle school and high school artists may drop-in and work independently on their projects at no charge.
Space is limited in these special classes!
